St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: How to Make Rainbow Jello

Guess what I made today? Rainbow Jello! Holy canolies my kids are going to flip when I pull these babies out of the refrigerator for dessert tonight. Rainbow jello is really easy to make. As long as you have two things. Patience and time.

How to Make Rainbow Jello:

Step #1

Know the colors of the rainbow.  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue & Purple.  Using the quick set method {ice cubes} prepare the purple jello first. Pour about 1/4 cup of prepared Jello into each glass.  FYI: I used the large boxes of Jello and this recipe made 8 glasses of rainbow jello, plus {1} 8×8 Pyrex dish.

Step #2

Place the glasses in a baking pan, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step #3

Add food coloring to 6 separate bowls of cool-whip or yogurt {one for each color of the rainbow}.

Step #4

Remove the cups of the Jello from the refrigerator and add a thin layer of colored whipped topping or yogurt on top of the Jello.  You want to match the color of whipped topping/yogurt to the colored Jello below.

Step #5

Working in reverse order, add the next color of Jello .  Refrigerate.  Repeat steps 4 & 5 until you have refrigerated the last layer {red} of Jello.  Once the red Jello has set, then add a dollop of whip cream to the top.  And a spoon and dig in.


6 {small or large}  boxes of Jello {red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple}
1 container Whipped Topping or 4 cups of yogurt.
